Ping Gets Social with Twitter

Apple’s social network for music, Ping (Ping), has unveiled a cross-platform integration with Twitter (Twitter) that now allows users to connect their Twitter accounts and automatically share their Ping activities to Twitter.

The collaboration also means that will now feature iTunes song previews, and support song purchases and downloads directly from tweets. iTunes song previews are available for all users in the 23 countries where iTunes is available.

Ping users who connect their Twitter accounts will now automatically share their Ping posts, likes and reviews on Twitter. The features are turned on by default, but Ping users can also disable the auto-tweets from within the settings portion of the iTunes social network.

“Last month, we launched a new version of Twitter that gives users the ability to see embedded photos and videos directly through the details pane. Adding the ability to listen to music previews makes that experience even richer,” says Carolyn Penner of Twitter’s communication team.

Ping’s Twitter infusion is quite significant. For one, Ping users can now easily find and connect with their Twitter followers, which makes Apple’s social network infinitely more social. Plus, with Twitter users set to automatically share their Ping activity, they’ll be playing a huge role in Ping’s growth.

What makes the cross-platform integration all the more interesting is the fact that Apple and Facebook (Facebook) have yet to resolve their relationship spat, so Ping users are still unable to connect their Facebook accounts.
